If you are new to programming with C++ and are looking for a solid introduction, this is the book for you. Developed by computer science instructors, books in the "For the Absolute Beginner"™ series teach the principles of programming through simple game creation. You will acquire the skills that you need for more practical C++ programming applications and will learn how these skills can be put to use in real-world scenarios. Throughout the chapters, you will find code samples that illustrate concepts presented. At the end of each chapter, you will find a complete game that demonstrates the key ideas in the chapter, a summary of the chapter, and a set of challenges that tests your newfound knowledge. By the time you finish this book, you'll be well versed in C++ and be able to apply the basic programming principles you've learned to the next programming language you tackle.
